Editor's Overview

The 2016 Infiniti QX80 ranks in the uppermost tier of full-size SUVs; it’s big, spacious, capable, smooth as clouds, luxurious as a weekend in Monaco, powerful as a connected politician. But with a price around $65,000 and a big V8 that likes gas, it doesn’t come for pocket change.

It's huge but drives like a sedan

I love the look and the luxuries. I love the adaptive windshield wipers and bright lights. I like the space inside. I wish it had a cooling steering wheel and seats. i wish my car had a 3rd seat in the 2nd row that could be added instead of the console. I wish it was better on gas.

- michelle T

I switched from a Yukon to the qx80 and it was by far the best decision.

It drives very smooth and plenty of room for a family of 5. We took out the middle console so it's easier to access the 3rd row. I have heated seats and steering wheel which comes in handy in the cold weather. My seats are super comfy even on a long drive.

- Ana H

It takes a lot of gas so it is definitely a gas guzzler.

I love that it is big and if we were ever in a wreck my kids would be safe. I love the color if it, its a pearly white. I love all the space. I dislike how slowly the seats fold down in the 3rd row. It takes forever.
